      Forever and Sunsmell by John Cage Performed by Dorothy Gal, Christopher Salvito, and Jessica Tsang Filmed and Recorded by Christopher Salvito Special thanks to our production assistant: Louna Dekker-Vargas The title and text of Forever and Sunsmell are from 26, one of 50 poems (1940) by e.e. cummings. Some lines and words have been omitted, others have been repeated or used in an order other than that of the original. The humming and vocalise (not part of the poem) are an interpolation. The original poem is as follows: wherelings whenlings (daugters of ifbut offspring of hopefear sons of unless and children of almost) never shall guess the dimension of him whose each foot likes the here of this earth whose both eyes love this now of the sky - endlings of isn't shall never begin to begin to imagine how (only are shall be were dawn dark rain snow rain -bow & a moon 's whis - per in sunset or thrushes toward dusk among whippoorwills or tree field rock hollyhock forest brook chickadee mountain.

                • Haikai


                  from Henry Daniel Added 17 0 0

                  "John Cage wrote “Haikai” in response to a concert the Evergreen Club was planning called The Circle Completed, and involved composers like James Tenney and Andrew Timar who were writing music for gamelan and prepared piano. Having already invented the prepared piano (making the piano sound like a gamelan), Cage's contribution to the event was to “prepare” the gamelan by turning gongs upside down, using bass bows and additional techniques. Cage also brought other ideas to bear on the gamelan – the idea of Korean unisons, and a strong structural reference to Japanese poetic form, haiku. The overall impression is like sitting in a most beautiful Zen garden. The piece is performed on the instruments that Cage wrote for and to which the piece is dedicated." - Jon Siddall, Director - VCC Gamelan Si Pawitt (Musician) Artistic direction by Henry Daniel
